dud? well i havent listened, but... for the era, the SETLIST looks quite fine.....

of course that is one of the amazing TRICKS of the dead, the setlist never ends up mattering when it's good -- only when it's a clunker....

It's not a total clunker - Birdsong is interesting (even "metallic" at times) but most of the songs really never pack any oomph. It was one of those shows where you felt like you were, for lack of a better analogy, waiting for the shrooms to hit but all you got was that tired sort of queasy feeling w/o the payoff (not that I have any first hand knowledge of such things). But those first few notes of Ripple, even though not a particularly good version of the song, elicited a collective roar of disbelief.
